Goal Of The Month

12 May 2017

Kevin Ellison's strike at Exeter shortlisted for Sky Bet League 2 Goal of the Month.

The April nominations for the Sky Bet Championship Goal of the Month Award are:

Heldar Costa – WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS v Cardiff City – 1st April

Now you see him, now you don’t. Costa bamboozled Cardiff’s Sean Morrison by feinting to go inside, then cutting back before simply passing the ball into the net.

Sebastien Pocognoli – Queens Park Rangers v BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION – 7TH April

It was the audacity of Pocognoli to curl his free-kick over the wall at pace and in at the near post from the tightest of set-piece angles which made this strike so special.

Aiden McGeady – Huddersfield Town v PRESTON NORTH END – 14th April 

Collecting a pass halfway into the opposition half, McGeady only had one thought – to skip past his man and unleash a 25-yarder that arced perfectly into the top corner.

The April nominations for the Sky Bet League One Goal of the Month Award are:

Marcus Maddison – PETERBOROUGH UNITED v Charlton Athletic – 1st April 

A goal befitting Maddison’s mercurial talents. Driving directly into the area, jinking this way and that, he then clipped home an exquisite lob off the underside of the bar. 

Aiden O’Brien – MILLWALL v Northampton Town – 14th April

With the ball bouncing around, O’Brien seized the moment to play a one-two of headers with Ben Thompson before volleying emphatically into the roof of the net.

Kevin van Veen – SCUNTHORPE UNITED v Coventry City – 30th April

The Dutchman pictured this goal in his head. Collecting the ball, he already knew he would take a step inside and send a gorgeous 20-yard curler inside the far post.

The April nominations for the Sky Bet League Two Goal of the Month Award are:

James Collins – CRAWLEY TOWN v Carlisle United – 22nd April

Shielding the ball from his marker, Collins stepped away, skipped a challenge and then unleashed a rising, unstoppable 20-yard hammerhead strike into the top corner.

Kevin Ellison – Exeter City v MORECAMBE – 22nd April

Age is no barrier to talent. Even at 38, Ellison can still time a ball exquisitely as he demonstrated by connecting perfectly with this falling volley to a long angled cross. 

Jordan Moore-Taylor – Doncaster Rovers v EXETER CITY – 29th April

A free-kick routine straight off the training ground ended with Moore-Taylor striking the ball so sweetly with his left foot that the ball was still rising as it flew into the net.
